Plymouth: Severe Coastal Damage Following the Nor’easter

For a look at just how damaging this storm was in Plymouth we have this report from WATD’s Charles Mathewson. 

More details of the weekend storm are emerging from Plymouth. A large portion of the bluff at Manomet Point washed away, taking the new work to shore it up, and the pump house used by The Lobster Pound to circulate ocean water through lobster tanks. The ocean-facing wall of the long vacant Bert’s restaurant went across Warren Avenue into the marsh by Plimoth Plantation and surf has run through the building (Bert’s) at high tides. One curious person had to be rescued when his truck got stuck in the water and two others were stuck on River Street where the Eel River flowed over the bridge.
